The young Ghanaian striker Felix Afena Gyan scored the only and decisive goal for AS Roma on matchday two of the Italian Primavera 1 championship at Trigoria Park.
After an intense, entertaining first 45 minutes with three yellow cards, Felix Afena-Gyan gave Roma the breakthrough when he was in 59.
The 18-year-old played a victim role for his teammates last week when they beat Torino 4-0 on the street. Felix has been described by Mondoprimavera as the best player on the field during his 80-minute game.
Gyan’s goal against Sassuolo secured Roma their second straight win of the season while ensuring that they are the only team to lose points after matchday two.
Sassuolo featured two other Ghanaian footballers. The midfielders Salim Abubakar and Justin Kumi were in action for the Neroverdi. Abubakar played the entire duration of the game while Kumi was introduced in the 60 minutes.
AS Roma lead the Primavera table after two games with two points ahead of Inter. The Giallorossi will play against Milan next weekend.
